Do you run Pfilesearch, searches and nothing happens? OR, are you running Pfind, searches and get message 'no files found' ???

Minor bug in the new standalone feature: the results window shows a blank list, I think if the number of hits exceeds the limit or something. The terminal says
Code:
(gtkdialog3:26296): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_text_buffer_emit_insert: assertion `g_utf8_validate (text, len, NULL)' failed

Also, if no files are found it displays a blank results window after the dialogue saying no files were found.
Personally I don't think these are important, because I don't think most people would want to use pfilesearch by itself at the moment as it only lists results as text... if only pfind had a --advanced option so we could launch it straight to the advanced search Smile

Alister
Thanks for testing
I can't reproduce the bug when you use '-' in search text. Can you be more specific. It seems to work here.

I also tested with a global search and got 126000 hits. They all showed up in the result window ???????

OK, my guess about it being to do with the number of hits must be wrong. I just tested again, and as an example, if I search for files with mp3 in their name on /mnt/sdb1, I get that error, but if I search for them in /mnt/sdb1/music, then it works... does the error message mean anything to you? Maybe it could be caused by invalid filenames or something weird...

I think this is only when searching for text in files. Actually, it is very inconsistent. I searched in a folder for files containing -hello, and got a list of false hits... I'm not sure what it actually searched for Smile
On some searches I get a whole lot of
Code:
grep: invalid max count
I don't know what it means.
On other searches it seems to hang - it never comes back with a results window, and when I use the cancel button it says in the terminal
Code:
/usr/local/pfilesearch/box_splash: line 30: kill: (1404) - No such process

When I initially noticed a problem I had searched using pfind and the progress dialogue that says it is building a results list or something had a whole lot of those grep messages - but I can't replicate that now.

BTW have you considered adding to pfind and pfilesearch a dialogue that says "The search directory does not exist"? At the moment you just get told there were no files found, and it doesn't display the search path or anything, so you can't tell if you just typed a path wrong.
Actually, it would be cool if the error message and even the results window showed the find command Smile

BTW this works in that drive - maybe when I get a chance I'll have to look at the find options pfilesearch uses and see if they work
Code:
find /mnt/sdb1 -wholename *mp3
.
Good night Smile

That sounds familiar... I wonder if it was also once a bug in pfind that got fixed before you invented pfilesearch Smile

Re: the problem searching for text in files for a string that includes a - character:
If I search for -hell or -hello I get false hits. And I notice if I search for -spitfire I see error messages in the terminal from grep, saying that p is not a valid switch. So I suspect it is a problem with quoting the -
